COTTON AND OKRA CLOSE SEASON.

Why is it necessary to have a Close
Season for Cotton and Okras ?
Every year our cotton is destroyed or
stained by attacks from Pink Boll
Worm and Cotton Stainers. These
pests can only live a short time without
food. They require cotton leaves,
shoots and seeds to thrive on, but they
can also live on okras and some types of
trees which are closely related to the
,cotton plant. Therefore, if we destroy
all the cotton and okra plants, and clean
up and destroy all seed cotton in our
fields, cotton houses, and our homes,
here is every chance thlit we will kill


off these pesis and next year not suffer
serious losses.
These insects multiply very rapidly,
so that if only a few survive, along with
the few plants you fail to destroy or dig
up thoroughly, or in the handful of seed
you leave lying about in or around your
house, this may be sufficient to cause
serious damage to your next crop.
Government has inspectors to assist
you in making certain that a thorough
clean up is effected, one or two who do
not comply will cause ruin to their own
and others cotton next year. Cleaning
up therefore is not a matter of' the 'In-
spector wishing to prosecute, it is a
matter of helping yourselves to protect
thi important crop,
If Cotton is chopped down, and hot
dug out it will grow again, and provide
food for the pests. If you keep abag of
unginned seed cotton in your house to
make a pillow, you are an enemy to all
your neighbours.
If you grow two or three okra plants
near your house, or far in the bush you
may cause thousandsof dollars damage
to St. Vincent.
When you market okras in the Close
Season, you are opening yourself to
prosecution, as you are committing a
flagrant breach of the Close Season regu-
lations! Please, therefore, show .that
yon are a more intelligent and respon-
sible member of the community by not
doing so in future.
Please help yourselves, help your
neighbours, and help your Inspectors to
have a thorough clean up during the
Cotton Close Season for 1953.
